    I want to add some new ringtones to my Treo without having to install some ringtone manager software on my Treo.

    Is this possible? I have a 4GB card in my Treo and can upload them there, but have no idea how to configure my Treo to see the new ringtones.

    What format are they? If they're mp3's, you'll need a 3rd party app. If they're wavs, amr or midi's, email them to your phone and load them into RAM (via Sounds).

    There are lots and lots of threads on this here.

    How do load the wav's into RAM when I email them to myself? Just launch them?


    Thanks Bill. I tried searching for this first, but the results page would not even come up. It appears that the search function seems to crash when doing a search that has a few words in it such as the following - "how to add ringtones to Treo"

    Tap the attachment and you should be given the choice to save it to Sounds.

    The secret to searching is "less is better". "How to add Ringtones" brings up 11 pages of results.

    MiniTones lets you clip portions of MP3s into ringtones. Free, fast, no additional software required.

    I convert MP3 to AMR this is the best way to do I think, the file size will be smaller and no 3rd party s/w required to play the tune, look for mobile media converter on Miksoft website or similar thing.

    Lotech, you owe it to yourself to try out Minitones. It's free and eliminates all conversion issues. You simply pick the MP3 file, clip out the section you want for your ringtone, and that's it. It's all done on your phone too. Can't get much easier than that.

    Yes, but that will still gives you a larger file size than needed, depending on the bitrate of the original MP3. I like to trim the file first in Audacity and then compress it with RazorLame. At any rate, using MiniTones is excellent and essential.

    MiniTones only clips MP3's to my knowledge. What could one use to trim a Midi file?

    I use MiniTones, but my original MP3s are done at 256, leaving even the trimmed ringtone larger than necessary. What's the best, simple, free way to recode MP3s to lower quality on my PC?

    Secondly, is it worth the free space to delete unused default ringtones? They seem pretty small.

    See this thread:
    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...d.php?t=124555

    The Afterdawn thread explains how to clip the MP3 file and then reduce it with RazorLame.

    You can also use iTunes to reduce the mp3 bit rate and thus make a smaller file.

    Go to iTunes/Preferences/Advanced/Importing/Setting/Custom and choose your bit rate. Also choose mono if your original mp3's are in stereo.

    Then import your mp3 into iTunes if it isn't already, highlight the desired files, and choose Advanced/Convert Selection to MP3.

    The converted files are in your iTunes music folder. I find it easier just to search for the files by name than to try to remember where that folder is.

    When you're done, be sure to go back to iTunes/Preferences/Advanced/Importing/Setting/Custom and set the bit rates back to your preferred value for music, otherwise after that all your imported/converted music will have the same low quality mono audio as your ringers.

    Convert, I use PSMPLAY to clip my midi files. Those are mainly what I use for my ringtones, and it's usually just a small clip that I want to play.

    o_town_racer, I only know AMR is a common standard for mobile media and can be used on many phones, I convert some MP3 to use on my Motorola and it worked great, the converter also come with some phone like Sony Ericssion, and there is no s/w install to the Palm it is only a PC thing so save some memory, anyway just my way to do it.......

    Thanks - seems to do the simple job I want, that is to trim down 10-20 sec pieces from full midi songs I downloaded. For some reason that link didn't work, but a simple google on PSMPLAY worked. Thanks again.

    I use bluetooth to transfer midi files over from my laptop to my 650. This by far is the easiest way to do it.
